I worked at Mindcurv full-time
Very good environment to work, Exposure to lot of technologies, Lot of work so you can learn
Bad Managers can cause headaches, Salary is not proportional to the amount of work that needs to be completed
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Mindcurv (Kochi (India)).
The whole process took 1.5-2 weeks.
I heard about this company from a friend who actually knows the HR of MindCurv's Kochi office. The general feedback was the work is good and the pay is good as well. So that made me apply. (I also had got couple of very good offers from Bangalore product based companies as a backup) and I have close to 6 years work ex.
First round was a basic HR round asking what do you know about MindCurv and what made you apply here etc.
This was followed by a telephonic interview which was technical. The interviewer was bit rude but the quality of questions were good and tough. It actually made me think that MindCurv is a good company which is looking out to recruit some high end talent.
Next was the F2F interview at their office. This interview was also good. It was a machine test and then followed by a F2F interview with a senior manager. Again all this was competitive which again made me feel that MindCurv is looking for some real good talent and their workforce would be super talented knowledgeable one. But all this came crashing down during the salary negotiation.
I hadn't specified any figure and told them I am expecting a industry standard hike.
And when the offer was rolled out - the salary quoted was not even a 10% hike. When asked the reason for such a mortified figure - the true colours started to show.
The reasoning was just so pathetic. They were giving reasons like - you have to take time to learn our technology and we will increase the pay after 6 months blah blah. And the HR's reasoning manner was so unprofessional. Never seen such behaviour from a HR lady.
Anyway my advise to anyone applying for their Kochi is office is simple -if you are looking for a good hike, then this is not the place.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
